25. 11,569, up 1.61% for the nikkei, the topix up 1.44%. we're also getting from the foreign markets and that is boosting sentiment here. we had some key earnings which helped out. among them, hewlett-packard which jumped out on friday. we'll watch out for the tech sector as well. also, markets in general took prime minister abe's u.s. visit in a positive slant as well. so that might be helping. now, there is a great deal of focus, of course, on his policies for boosting growth in japan known as abenomics, which has sent the nikkei up to highs we've seen so far. markets really want to know if this is sustainable, and investors really need to see more action. now, the naming of this new bank of japan governor may really aid a lot of that sentiment, we shall see. but a pretty positive opening here. ai, i will keep track of ku currencies as well as stocks. back to you. >> thank you, ramin.
